Like no other genre, good science fiction can elicit awe in viewers, and that is precisely what Amazon’s new series Night Sky is going for. On the other hand, Night Sky is attempting to strike a more grounded and realistic balance. Holden Miller, the show’s creator, describes it as “kind of experiencing something extremely monumental, but from a space that seems like your own bedroom.” Night Sky sounds like it could be a fantastic summer sci-fi series for everyone who stares up at the night sky and wonders about the cosmos and its position, with Sissy Spacek and J.K. Simmons in the pivotal roles.
The tone of Night Sky, which is “emotionally severe [but] with warmth and a humour and an escapist quality,” as Holden Miller puts it, maybe challenging to achieve. With a fascinating premise and exceptional talent on board, we’re excited to see how Night Sky manages to do all of this while also providing an exciting and rewarding science fiction series that keeps faithful to Miller’s “mortality, love, [and] family dynamics.” Here’s what we know about this fascinating science fiction series so far:
When be Be Will Night Sky Available?
Night Sky is an Amazon Studios and Legendary Television co-production, so it’s no surprise that it’ll be available on Amazon Prime.

What Exactly Is A Night Sky Plot?
Night Sky is a series about Irene and Franklin York, an elderly couple. They discovered a portal to another world in their home years ago. They’ve chosen to keep this other world hidden. But now that they’re older, keeping it hidden is getting more difficult. Especially as their granddaughter and neighbour become increasingly concerned about their strange behaviour. Also, of their habit of creeping around the property at night.
The official synopsis for Night Sky from Prime Video states: “Spanning space and time, Night Sky follows Irene and Franklin York, a couple who, years ago, discovered a chamber buried in their backyard which inexplicably leads to a strange, deserted planet. They’ve carefully guarded their secret ever since. Still, when an enigmatic young man enters their lives, the Yorks’ quiet existence is quickly upended… and the mystifying chamber they thought they knew so well turns out to be much more than they could ever have imagined.”
“Aging is a perfectly universal experience that ideally we will all be lucky enough to experience and think about,” Holden Miller said of the decision to centre the series on an older couple.
Night Sky is the creator of Holden Miller’s first scripted TV series, although it features an experienced showrunner in Daniel C. Connolly, who has worked on Longmire, Into the Badlands, and The Son.
The new series is part of Prime Video’s packed 2022 roster, which includes another sci-fi show in Outer Range. And the third season of its blockbuster series The Boys, which will premiere this summer. But we’re here to talk about Night Sky, so keep reading to find out everything you need to know about the new series.
Irene and Franklin start to think it’s time to tell someone about their secret. It becomes even more urgent when they discover someone else in the portal. He is a guy (or potentially an alien) named Jude. Due to the peculiar workings of the otherworldly chamber, Irene, Franklin, and Jude’s stories become linked with that of an Argentinian mother and daughter, Stella and Toni.
Watch the Trailer for Night Sky
On April 22, 2022, a trailer for Night Sky was published.
Irene and Franklin’s strong love for each other and their sense of awe and love for the gateway and world they discovered are established in the trailer. Irene insists that it is their puzzle to solve, and their personalities and reasons for keeping the discovery of the extraordinary doorway a secret are evident. The situation is changing now that they are older, and they need to tell someone else about the secret, as shown in the trailer.
Jude’s unexpected and unexplained arrival in their life appears to upend all they thought they understood, prompting Irene to speculate that he might be an alien. Toni and Stella are also shown in Argentina, though it’s unclear how their story links to Irene, Franklin, and Jude’s. Despite all of the action and mystery, the trailer does an excellent job of establishing Irene and Franklin’s long and loving relationship. And their dedication to one another, which appears to be at the heart of the series.
Who is in the cast of Night Sky?
As the critical couple Irene and Franklin York, J.K. Simmons and Sissy Spacek make an exciting coupling. It is by marking the first time the two Oscar winners (Simmons for Whiplash. Also, Spacek for Coal Miner’s Daughter) have collaborated.
Simmons is best known for his Oscar-winning performance in Invincible and his roles as J. Jonah Jameson in the Spider-Man films (both Maguire and Holland). Still, he’s been swamped in recent years, including several films that have only been available on Prime Video. It includes Being the Ricardos, Goliath, and The Tomorrow War. Spacek has worked less recently, so seeing her is always a treat.
She last appeared on television (TV or film) in Homecoming. Also, Castle Rock, and The Old Man and the Gun in 2018. Bloodline, The Help, In the Bedroom, and Carrie are some of her other well-known credits. Chai Hansen (The Newsreader), Kiah McKirnan (Mare of Easttown). Also, Julieta Zylberberg (The Invisible Look), Roco Hernández (La Canada), and Adam Bartley round out the Night Sky cast (Longmire).
